Aromatic Realities Workshop with Beatrice Glow

Join us for a hands-on scent-making workshop and tour of the exhibition Once the Smoke Clears led by the multi-sensory and multidisciplinary artist Beatrice Glow.

Hear directly from the artist about her research on multi-sensory storytelling with a focus on the development of the exhibition, land-based practices, and social history of plants. Discover a scent narrative as a group and reflect on how knowledge passes through our scent experience.

Each participant will create their own personal scent that they can take home. Herbal tea will be provided to build on the multi-sensory aspects of the workshop.
